Medical Examination for Green Card Q & A

What should I bring to the exam?

When you book your appointment at Doctors of Bellevue-Redmond, be sure to review what documents you should bring. The USCIS instructs you to bring a specific form that the doctor fills out, signs, and seals after your examination.

Just as important as this form, is a record of your vaccinations. A significant part of the medical exam is to ensure that you don’t pose a health risk within the borders of the United States, so you’ll need proof of up-to-date vaccinations.

In addition to your vaccination documents, bring along anything that may have to do with your health, such as current medications or documents chronicling any disabilities.

What is checked during the exam?

A Green Card medical exam is a screening process where the doctor checks for:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Leprosy

The doctor screens for these with precise tests that include:

  • Skin pricks
  • X-rays
  • Blood tests
  • Urinalysis

The next part of the exam is designed to evaluate your mental health. More specifically, the doctor checks for any signs of physical or mental disorders with associated harmful behavior.

Following your mental health check, the doctor reviews any drug abuse or drug addiction history you may have. If you have a history of drug abuse and you have documents outlining your recovery, bring those with you.

The last part of the exam is a review of your vaccinations. The doctor has a checklist for the following vaccines:

  • DT, DTaP, or DTP
  • Td or Tdap
  • OPV or IPV
  • MMR
  • Hib
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Varicella
  • Pneumococcal
  • Influenza
  • Rotavirus
  • Meningococcal

Ultimately, the goal of the medical exam is to ensure that you’re not a public health and safety liability.
